Germany: An African man attacks travellers and police officers with stones

In the night to Sunday, a man at Lichtenberg station threw stones at travellers first and then police officers. Around 1:15 a.m., a 20-year-old Somali took ballast stones from the track bed and threw them at two travellers on a platform. When they fled into an suburban train ready to depart, he damaged a window of the train by throwing further stones. On the arrival of the alarmed federal police, he also threw at the task forces. Together with a witness and colleagues from the Berlin police, the police managed to bring the attacker to the ground and arrest him temporarily. A policeman was injured by a stone’s throw on his wrist, but was able to continue his service. The officers initiated preliminary proceedings against the man for resistance against police officers, dangerous bodily harm and damage to property. After all police measures had been completed, a doctor referred the man to the psychiatric department of a hospital.
